Week 29: Finally, Friday!!

20140329-101150.jpg

Happy, Saturday!! Another week whizzed through ridiculously fast! March is almost over and crunch time at work will hopefully slow down, lol.

Highlights:

The big girls got plenty of outside time this week. We now welcome the 30s like it ain’t cold. Anything below that is dangerous for outside activities. I am really glad that we live within walking distance to a park, cause the girls can run out there whenever they want to.

Xavi is currently prepping for her first scrabble tournament coming up this Thursday, I know exciting 🙂 I hope she does really well and kicks ass. You can never be too competitive, even(or especially) with brain sports.

Jaelan had a performance in front of the entire 6th grade during lunch yesterday. I am happy to report that she said she received the most applause. I was not able to attend, due to her not telling me about it until Wednesday. She sang, “Happy”, by Leona Lewis, not the one by Pharrell.

Finally, Jaelan asked me if she can ask me a question one day during dinner this week. I was like um, uh, sure…..? She asked: How did the world come about, you know like life and earth and the solar system, and monkey. She said she has a couple of scientific theories about it, which we discussed, but she wanted to know what I thought. I welcome these type of questions over that other one.

Aspen:

Aspen has been missing out on a few park days the last couple of weeks because she has been taking naps, religiously, between 5-7pm. So, when she wakes up, there is barely enough sunlight to go play. I have no idea why she is so exhausted so late in the day. But it is AWESOME! When I get off of work she is knocked out and all is well and quiet and peaceful. Mwahahaha!!

PS: This week, a friend and I got to check out a wine bar I had been eyeing at the River Market. I joined the club and might blog about it after I get a feel(or fill) of the benefits. This is mostly due to my obsession with cocktail/spirits/wine/dranks.

Week 21: Finally, Friday!!

Happy, Saturday! Another day behind Friday post 🙂 Awesomeness!

Week 21 Highlights:

Jaelan has been pretty busy with school work and clubs so she’s been pretty boring this week. I kid. She also started working out with her dad and I. Surprisingly, she is pretty motivated. She even got an attitude when she thought she was kicked her out of the home gym in favor of her school work. She got over it quickly.

Xavi had an interesting week. She was stressing and dreading her school’s Kansas Day, which was this week, because they were required to Square Dance. In front of people, she said. And y’all know Xavier and I don’t square dance, so, she was alone in this one. I did volunteer to help serve lunch to her whole grade , I was the dinner roll lady. So, I got to see her try to square dance. This is how it went:

Aspen

Aspen is all about her dad and Bavion(Xavi) right now. She only comes to me or wants to hang out with me when she gets in trouble with her dad or when she gets in trouble period.

Like when she decided to draw on my face while I napped one day this week. A hint of her face art stayed after several facial scrubbings. GRRR, Aspen, GRRRR! But that did not satisfy her hunger for art, because she decided to draw on a wall. So, she got in more trouble with me and she ran to Xavi, cause Xavier wasn’t home.

She has also been uber hyper this week, like overdrive, she is everywhere! Not sure if it is the sweets and cookies, or she is just crazy, like her dad. Not sure. She breaks out in dance moves when she hears her favorite music. See:

So, indoor activity puzzle edition was a total FAIL because it required her to sit down.

No uber funny convos with her this week, but lots of funny phrases/words. Here is one:

“Janis! Janis! My name is Dr. Aspen and I am doing check-ups, I need my sketoscope!”

PS: We had a company party this week and the theme was, A Beach Getaway. Mean while, I had to fight the Ice Villain that devoured my car cause it was too damn cold degrees outside. But, the party was nice and refreshing. They had virgin mangoritas. The End.

PSS: Excuse the video quality, it’s only iPhone.

Week 2: Finally, Friday!

YAY, it is what!? FRIDAY!! It was another hectic and busy one, but I found the time and energy to snap some shots of half of the family.

Week 2 Highlights:

According to Aspen: I will now be called, “Danis Mommy”, in that order, and Mimi(Grandma) will now be called T-Londa. Everyone else retains their names.When asked where she is from, she replies, “I am from Aunt Wanda’s house” and not from, Houston, TX.

Jaelan and Xavi wants to know why I feed them like, “Mexican luchador wrestlers”. I told them because they eat like “Japanese sumo wrestlers”. BAM!

We got a new pet. Can you guess what it can possible be? Pics coming soon. I guess it’s cute and stuff.
